Our blog today at Event Cup Solutions examines how our reusable festival cup hire model can not only help your festival fulfil its environmental responsibilities but also be a profit generating scheme at the same time.
With the world in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic and with the vast majority of large festivals having already been cancelled for 2020, will there ever be a better time for festival organisers to re-evaluate their offering, processes and services – in other words, ‘how they do things’?
After Coronovirus we will be coming back to a new world
The chances are that (hopefully) we’ll never get this time again. One thing is for sure, though, that we’ll be coming back to a new world, and one where the environment and sustainability will have jumped even higher up most people’s agendas – just as it should have been before COVID-19 hit the world at large and every one of our lives as we know it.
Disposable plastic cups can no longer be acceptable. We all know the damage that single use plastic do to our world and so we HAVE to find alternatives. The problem is that alternatives have, up until this point, not really solved the issue. Single use disposable pints allow large volumes of people to served quickly and easily…..and it’s the cheapest – and so most attractive – offering. However, this soon won’t be the case.
How reusable festival cup hire fits the bill
Other plastic festival cup solutions have come along offering a branded solution. Whilst this might be attractive on the face of it, these cease to be reusable cups as we know them as soon as they are put in a person’s pocket and taken home as a souvenir. Likewise, many of these reusable festival cups are made in polypropylene – this is not transparent, and is not 100% recyclable at the end of its life.
This is where our reusable festival cup hire solution at ECS comes into its own. Our reusable festival cups are made from polycarbonate which is transparent and also nucleated at the bottom and so first and foremost provides a great ‘glass’ to drink from.
Secondly, it is plastic and so complies with H&S regulations for large festivals and events.
Thirdly, our ONE reusable range of plastic cups comes with its own generic environmental message to help reinforce the green credentials at your event.
And – yes, we’ve left the best until last – we can demonstrate to you how you can use our reusable festival cup hire scheme and make it profit generating.
Just get in touch and we’ll show you how!
